This sounded like a compelling draft even with a number of very strong Gravity Head beers available. A fine Belgian ale was robust, flavorful, and well worth a full pint.

Aroma / Appearance - Fluid and rich, this is a very attractive looking beer with a deep ivory head. Licorice, candy, dry chocolate, and inviting hops blossom in the air along with a contribution of Belgian undertones.

Flavor / Palate - Anise, yeast, powered donuts, sweet bittersweet chocolate, and black Twizzlers fill the mouth with a very full body. A bitter finish of black coffee hangs in the throat as well. A solid tap was worth choosing over some of the other local high gravity offerings.

Tap: Nearly black with a small tan head. Smoky, chocolate malt, coffee aroma. Sweet, mild chocolate taste. Very porter-like with a hint of Belgian-ness.... Very good.

Tap. Wood/charcoal and light chocolate malt aroma. Dark black-brown color with moderate head. Slightly sweet chocolate malt flavor with a moderately bitter herbal hops finish. Smooth as silk. Very tasty.
